A rebellious preteen (Garrett Wareing) with a remarkable gift is challenged by a demanding vocal teacher (Dustin Hoffman) at one of the most prestigious music academies in the country as they prepare for the National Championship. Also starring Kathy Bates, Kevin McHale, Eddie Izzard, Debra Winger, River Alexander and Josh Lucas.
Boychoir seems to be a more sedated version of Whiplash with Hoffman playing the teacher that will be pushing Stet past him limits to make him the best singer in the choir. Hoffman looks strong in the role, but the overall film looks to be something relatively cliché outside of his performance.
The film is set to open in theaters in a limited release on April 3.
